    Help with a button to transfer data.

    Can this be done?

    I have a google sheet “form” that I need to take the information someone imputes and with the push of a button, the script will transfer the data from the form and place it in a row on another sheet and then clear the form to make ready for a new entry. Each time new data will be transferred, the button will add it to a new row.
    Can the script do this in a button?

    Thanks

    Hi rdaughdril and welcome to the forum on #2 post.

    I recorded a macro in Excel and will give you the attached back that does what you wanted. I have no idea how to do this in Google Sheets.
    Here is the VBA Code (not optimized) and the workbook with VBA in Excel.

    A Google Form could easily send the data to a Google Sheet. Have you considered that option?

    Re: Help with a button to transfer data.

    What you suggested would be perfect. I have not worked with Google forms so I'm not very familiar with the process. The reason for the Google sheets form is that the submitter will be getting their data from a Google Sheet to fill form the form. I have mutable agencies that will be submitting the form data from their own Google Sheet and I will be compiling the data into one central Google Sheet.

    Thanks for all the help.

    Im confused what you mean.
    Why does a user need to get their own information from a google sheet and then enter it again?

    I have mutable agencies that will be submitting the form data from their own Google Sheet and I will be compiling the data into one central Google Sheet
    Why do you need separate google sheets?
    A single google form can be shared with everyone and then all the data will be on 1 google sheet, or you can create copies of the form (one for each agency) and then all the data will be on their own agency google sheet.

    Re: Help with a button to transfer data.

    Here is a more in-depth explanation of what we are trying to accomplish.

    A provider has all their data pre-loaded in the spreadsheet.
    Upon activation, they choose a unit and crew member to be on that unit.
    They do this by the use of a Google Sheet that is in a form format.

    ****Here is where I need help***
    The form uses a lot of look-up fields from the spreadsheet to complete the form.
    What I need the form to do is that the different fields that they have submitted and compile their form data on a new row to a "Total Data" sheet. They will have numerous units and crews.

    We share this data with the provider/state/contractor.

    Again, thanks for all the help.

    Re: Help with a button to transfer data.

    Ok, as you need a form to lookup fields, a Google Form can not do that in the way you have explained it.

    So you would need to:
    * create an Apps Script
    * create a drawing (the button)
    * attach the Apps Script to that button
    Whenever you press the button, the data will be "transfered" (using getValues and set Values) to the location defined in the Apps Script.

    Re: Help with a button to transfer data.

    How do I make the movement of data of the form go to the last row of my data and choose that row to add all my data?

    You will need to create/write an Apps Script.

    To get started, on the toolbar, select Extensions then Apps Script
